Why obesity can cause cancer

The new discovery may explain why obese people are more likely to develop cancer.

Why obesity can cause cancer

The type of cell that the body uses to destroy cancerous tissue is clogged with fat and stops working, a team from Trinity College in Dublin found.

Obesity is the largest preventable cause of cancer in the UK after smoking, reports Cancer Research UK.

And more than one in 20 cases of cancer — about 22,800 cases each year in the UK — are caused by overweight. Experts have already suspected that fat sends signals to the body that can both damage cells leading to cancer and increase their number.

Trinity scientists were able to show in the journal Nature Immunology how cancer-fighting body cells in the body become clogged with fat.

And they hope to find a medical treatment that will restore the fighting abilities of these cells - "natural killers."

Professor Lydia Lynch said: “A component that can block the absorption of fat by natural killer cells can help.

"We tried it in the lab and found that it allowed them to kill again." But perhaps the best way would be to lose weight, because it is better for you anyway. "

Dr. Leo Carlin of the UK's Beatson Institute Cancer Research Institute said: “Although we know that obesity increases the risk of 13 different types of cancer, we still do not fully understand the mechanisms underlying this connection.

"This study shows how fat molecules interfere with immune cells in properly positioning their mechanism for destroying tumors, and provides new opportunities for research into treatment methods.

To reduce the risk of cancer, you need:

- have a healthy weight
- stop smoking
- apply a healthy diet
- reduce alcohol consumption
- avoid sunburn
